Making Fancy Bracelets From Toilet Paper Rolls

We have fun at the children’s soup kitchen. I used to dread going because it took so much energy and I felt I was constantly having to discipline the kids.

Now things are calm and I enjoy being there!

A big changeĀ is that Isaiah and I have loosened up, but I do believe the kids are more used to the routines and expectations at the soup kitchen and there isn’t constant fighting or blatant rule breaking.

We often read books or play frisbee.

At least once a week we plan a simple activity or craft project. On my birthday, we made fancy bracelet cuffs, which were a big hit with everyone!

We made them out of empty toilet paper rolls and decorated them with everything from stickers to old Christmas tinsel to stamps that I cut out of envelopes from letters you guys have sent us in the mail!

What a big treat it was for everyone to choose their special decorations and create a bracelet just to their liking.

Want to try it out? Here’s how!

Supplies needed:

Toilet paper rolls
Markers
Glue
Yarn

Stickers, old stamps, magazine cutouts, wrapping paper, glitter, anything for decoration!

Process:

1. Cut each toilet paper roll in half.

2. Then cut a slit in each cuff so it can be placed around a wrist.

3. Punch a hole in each side of the slit. These will be used to tie bracelet shut so it doesn’t fall off.

4. Decorate the bracelet to your liking. Go crazy!

5. Place on wrist and thread yard through the hole punches. Tie yarn in bow so bracelet stays on wrist but can still be removed.
